NieR: Automata and Final Fantasy XV to Share Features
Two great series are working together.
11.24.16 - 4:27 PM

NieR: Automata, the action RPG that looks more promising every month, now has ties to arguably the biggest RPG of the year: Final Fantasy XV. Noctis' primary weapon in Final Fantasy XV, the Engine Blade, will be acquirable for in-game use by NieR Automata's protagonist, YorHa No. 2 Type B.

PlatinumGames and Square Enix are giving the weapon its own unique style in the NieR world. While the weapon is equipped, it will have its own distinct evasion effect, and the damage count style will be a direct copy of Final Fantasy XV. Final Fantasy XV is reported to have some tie-ins of its own to NieR: Automata, but details are still unknown.

Square Enix has released gameplay of YorHa No. 2 Type B with the Engine Blade, in action. Check it out below!

The first NieR was a hidden gem that suffered in sales, partly due to a lack of awareness. Affiliating the series with Final Fantasy, an RPG behemoth, will hopefully inform people about the allure of NieR: Automata.

Final Fantasy XV releases worldwide on November 29, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One. NieR: Automata releases in Japan on February 23, 2017, with a Western release set for an undisclosed 2017 date for PS4 and PC via Steam.
